Oscar-nominated ‘MASH’ actress Sally Kellerman dies at 84 https://carolchanning.org/oscar-nominated-mash-actress-sally-kellerman-dies-at-84/ Fri, 25 Feb 2022 04:08:48 +0000 https://carolchanning.org/oscar-nominated-mash-actress-sally-kellerman-dies-at-84/ Sally Kellerman, the svelte-voiced, sultry-voiced actress and singer whose portrayal of Major Margaret (Hot Lips) Houlihan in the 1970 black comedy “MASH” earned her an Oscar nomination, died Thursday at a residence- services in Los Angeles.

Sally Kellerman, the svelte-voiced, sultry-voiced actress and singer whose portrayal of Major Margaret (Hot Lips) Houlihan in the 1970 black comedy “MASH” earned her an Oscar nomination, died Thursday at a residence- services in Los Angeles. She was 84 years old.

His son, Jack Krane, said the cause was heart failure.

During her decades-long career in film and television, she was best known for her role as the narrow but attractive army nurse in “MASH,” which also earned Ms. Kellerman rave reviews and a Golden Globe Award.

The film, directed by Robert Altman, broke new ground with its irreverence and graphic depiction of a group of passionate surgeons struggling to save horribly injured soldiers in an army surgical unit during the Korean War. (When “MASH” was adapted into a television series, the character of Mrs. Kellerman was played by Loretta Swit.)

Ms. Kellerman then appeared in several other films directed by Mr. Altman, including “Brewster McCloud” (1970) and “Welcome to LA” (1976). Like other actors, she was drawn to working with Mr. Altman because of the leeway he allowed in interpreting scripts and improvisational scenes.

After her starring role in ‘MASH’, Ms Kellerman sought to revive her singing career, performing her cabaret number at nightclubs like the Grand Finale in New York.

On the nightclub circuit, her performances garnered mixed reviews. Although she had “an intriguing raspy voice” and “the makings of an effective pop singer”, as the New York Times put it in 1977, she was criticized for some of the same qualities for which she was known. as an actress, like her “airy superficiality.

In an interview with The Times in 1981, Ms Kellerman spoke of the break she had taken to focus on singing, calling it a “great experience” that left her feeling “fresh”.

Sally Kellerman was born on June 2, 1937 in Long Beach, California to John Helm Kellerman and Edith Kellerman.

In Ms. Kellerman’s 2013 memoir, “Read My Lips: Stories of a Hollywood Life”, she described wanting to be a performer from an early age, when she was a “skinny little girl growing up in Granada Hills in the San Fernando Valley.”

“I had to come out of the womb singing and playing,” she wrote.

As a tall, chubby teenager, she harbored dreams of performing on stage that she kept secret until she was a senior in high school, acting in Hollywood High’s production of “Meet Me in St. Louis “.

At 18, then a self-proclaimed “jazz groupie”, she was offered a singing contract with famed jazz label Verve Records, Ms Kellerman told The Times in 1981. He was broken by his debilitating stage fright.

Her acting career began in musical comedy in productions like the Broadway musical “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” (1966).

Besides her son, she is survived by a daughter, Claire Kellerman Krane. Another daughter, Hannah Krane, died in 2016. Ms Kellerman’s husband Jonathan Krane also died in 2016. A previous marriage to Rick Edelstein ended in divorce.

With his long hair and big smile, Alex Barone has the movie star look you might imagine in a blockbuster movie.

But look a little closer and you’ll notice something a little different about this Los Angeles-based actor.

Most notably, he has only six fingers, three on each hand, which he jokingly compares to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Over the past decade, Alex has pursued his love of acting, and while it hasn’t been easy, he says it’s finally getting easier for actors with disabilities to get roles.

born different

Born and raised in the American city of Baltimore, it was immediately clear that Alex was a little different.

“I was born with a condition called fibular hemimelia, so I was born with three fingers on both hands like a ninja turtle, and I was also born without the fibula bone in my right leg,” he explains. .

The condition causes the affected leg to become shortened, often resulting in amputation to prepare for a prosthesis. “

“Instead of amputation when I was a kid, which they wanted to do, I ended up doing something called limb lengthening, where they stretched my right leg and made it equal in length to my left,” says Alex.

“I had a total of 43 surgeries between the ages of 6 and 18.

“My parents never allowed me to believe that I was disabled in any way. So they really kept pushing me and telling me that I could do whatever I wanted,” adds Alex.

Acceptance and action

Alex admits for years he tried to hide his hands by keeping them in his pockets.

But after years of surgeries, he decided to challenge himself when he returned to high school.

“I had just completed my 30th or so surgery…I came back to school and needed to sign up for an elective course,” he recalls.

“I signed up for theater to put myself forward and face my fears and get on stage and that kind of stuff.

“I’ve found acting to be a great way for me to escape my insecurities and step into someone else’s shoes, which I think has ultimately helped build my confidence and my love for it.”

Years Later Would Be a Hollywood Eli Roth, the Writer and Director Behind Horror Hits cabin fever and Hostelthat would give him his big break.

“I walked up to him, tapped him on the shoulder and said, ‘Hey Mr. Roth, I’m Alex Barone, I’ve got these awesome hands’ which I pushed in his face.

“And I was like, ‘Knowing that you do horror, feel free to use me for anything, I’m a huge fan’, he thought that was awesome, and then this took off from there,'” he says.

Diverse cast

Alex says that while it can be difficult to get acting roles when you have a physical difference, the tide is starting to turn.

“I think things, even over the past seven years, are changing for the better for people with disabilities, actors with disabilities.

“When I first started acting it seemed like I only go out for handicap roles, which are one in a thousand.

“Now the casting directors, directors and producers bring in actors for all the roles and they change the role to fit the structure of the actor.

“So whether they’re disabled or not, they’re able to change the writing and work with that person and make it unique based on the game, not their physique or their difference, which is really cool. ”

“I noticed a really positive change with people recruiting me for all the roles, not just the disability (roles),” he says.

One of his biggest roles to date was a bit in the Hulu/Disney+ miniseries Drug alongside Michael Keaton.

It was a small but important role for Alex.

Drug was amazing – it’s such a good story, (but) a sad story about the opioid pandemic and how it started and its rise in the United States.

“During the audition, they asked why I was connecting to this content, and I told them how my biological father died of opioids and I really connected to that.

“That’s how it went, just being vulnerable and sharing my story.”

“And this role in particular, they were looking for someone with a limb difference, specifically missing fingers, so that was perfect for me.

“It was wonderful working with Michael Keaton and (creator) Danny Strong, and (executive producer) Barry Levinson, and the cast and crew were all amazing – it’s a great show.”

It’s not just Alex who is successful on the small screen.

His friend and fellow disabled actor Zyra Gorecki recently landed a lead role in the NBC drama La Breawhich filmed mainly in Melbourne.

After losing her leg in a car accident at the age of 13, Zyra became the first amputee actress to land a central role in a television series.

“I think it’s huge for Zara to get a steady lead in this series, and what I felt was great about La Brea When they met her, they thought she was an awesome actress, and then they put her on the show and adapted the story around her leg.

“What was unique about this La Brea and NBC did was he CGId (computer generated) his leg amputated into a real leg, which I thought was really cool.

“Usually it’s the other way around, where they’ll take a valid actor and CGI a member difference. instead of taking a member difference in the CGI to look “normal”.

“I thought it was awesome – it was huge and hopefully we’ll see a lot more of it on TV.”

Not a witch

Alex is also a disability advocate, who came to prominence after the release of The witches in 2020.

In the film, Anne Hathaway plays the Great Witch, who in her true witch form has only three fingers on each hand.

The performance provoked outrage from the members’ difference community, which saw it as further alienation for people with physical disabilities.

“The whole thing in a nutshell is that they made an able-bodied person look disabled, and they kind of made it a scary thing, a scary trait, or a quality about that person. …that someone with a limb difference would be portrayed as a witch or something evil or disgusting.

“People with limb differences don’t want it to be portrayed as a disgusting thing, especially in a movie like this, which is supposed to be a kid’s movie.

“How are kids supposed to react to a movie like this? Having nothing to admire that isn’t bad makes it look cool or awesome, or having three fingers on both hands is a superhero type quality, not a witch type quality.

Actress Anne Hathaway and the studio behind the Warner Bros. Pictures later apologized for the performance.

Accept your difference

Despite many years of trying to hide their differences, Alex’s advice to anyone with a difference is to embrace it.

“I was very unsure about it for a while, I didn’t want to talk about it, I kept my hands in my pockets, etc.

“Over time it became like an icebreaker – something unique, something cool about me.

“My hands made me, so everyone knew me as Alex, the ninja turtle guy, eventually it became a matter of trust.”

What about people staring at him and asking questions when he’s out in public?

“The way I see it is if people are watching, it’s almost like you’re going anywhere and you’re near someone with super shiny, spiky, mohawk, pink hair, you’re going to look at that person because they’re different.

“I find it’s the same if people look at my hands and wonder, because that’s not a common thing, especially when I was growing up, so of course they’ll look at me.

“It’s another thing if they’re whispering or pointing or laughing and making fun of me or someone with a disability.

“But watching, I don’t mind. I love educating people – I think that’s huge.

“It also empowers you and builds your confidence to talk to them and just give them a quick rundown of your story and then move on.”

The last word

“I would say put yourself front and center. Face your fear, whatever it is, and do it.

“Whether you want to be an actor or a dancer, singer, creative and you have a disability, don’t do what I did growing up and hide behind your inner wall and be so afraid to face it.

“Just confront that you are different, accept it, acknowledge it, and use it to your advantage.”

“Showing yourself off – that’s what makes you unique and special and different from everyone else.

“You don’t want to blend in, do you?” You want to stand out!

Drug is streaming now Disney+. You can also view Alex’s webseries on ICT Tac.

THE Golden Globes are scheduled to take place this Sunday, but with a very different vibe for 2022, with the event now being labeled “private.”

The 79th Golden Globes will be held on Sunday January 9, 2022, however, it was announced Thursday that the event will be “private” and not broadcast live.

“We will provide real-time updates on the winners on the Golden Globes website and on our social media,” the Golden Globe Awards revealed in a tweet.

It was also reported that the ceremony was unable to find a broadcast partner for the year or any celebrities wishing to participate, according to Variety.

It comes after the Globes were hit with boycotts over its diversity and ethics scandal, with a host of big names slamming the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

NBC has also decided to end the show due to the HFPA’s lack of diversity.

HFPA President Helen Hoehne said Hollywood journalist: “A change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we believe the HFPA needs time to get it right. “

Read our Golden Globes live blog for the latest news and updates …

  • Tom Cruise returned his Golden Globes

    Cruise reportedly returned his three Golden Globe trophies to the HFPA, which has been criticized for a lack of diversity as well as ethical lapses.

    The 58-year-old actor won the Globes for Best Actor for Jerry Maguire, Best Actor for Born July 4 and Best Supporting Actor for Magnolia.

    Those performances also earned Oscar nominations for the Mission Impossible star.

    The HFPA is a non-profit organization made up of journalists and photographers who report on the entertainment industry.

  • Oscars vs. Golden Globes

    An important distinction between the two awards shows is that the Golden Globes also honor television, while the Oscars exclusively honor cinema.

    Golden Globe winners are chosen by a small group of 93 HFPA members, but Oscar winners are chosen by around 60,000 industry professionals who are AMPAS members.

    The Globes are also a bigger event than the Oscars, with free food and drink, while the Oscars usually only feature the awards show, with the rest of the celebration taking place after the party.

    Finally, compared to the Oscars, the Golden Globes have more categories.

  • ‘Nervous’

    Traditionally, the Golden Globes have been known as the boldest and wettest little brother of the most prestigious Academy Awards.

    In 2011, Robert Downey Jr. joked that he “didn’t know if an actress can do her best job until I have slept with her”.

    And Avengers star Jeremy Renner, 50, joked about Jennifer Lopez’s impressive “globes” on stage in 2015.

  • HFPA controversy

    NBC dropped out of the awards show last year.

    It emerged after it emerged that not a single one of the 87 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association was black.

    He made a series of changes in an attempt to settle the scandal.

    But the move failed to persuade the boycott stars to participate or to broadcast the event live.

  • Who hosts the Golden Globes?

    The host of the 2022 Golden Globes has not been announced.

    It’s increasingly likely that there won’t be a host this year.

  • The grades go down

    Globes audience figures fell from 18 million to just 6.9 million last year

    The audience was the smallest for the ceremony since US television giant NBC began broadcasting in 1996 – and just over half that of the BBC for last year’s Strictly finale.

  • Rules for guests

    The few guests who will be at the Beverly Hilton hotel are under strict orders to wear masks and socially distance themselves at all times.

    Proof of vaccination, negative PCR test and vaccine booster are also mandatory for all participants.

    Officially, the organizer, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, cited the pandemic and the increase in Covid cases across America as the reason for the low-key celebration.

    But in reality, a slow and steady drop in ratings coupled with a growing controversy over gags and handy portrayal has seen the Globes’ appeal rise.

  • Online event only

    Once Hollywood’s most notorious party, filled with the rich and the beautiful, it will now be online only amid increasing pressure on diversity and controversial gags.

    Organizers have confirmed that this year’s ceremony will only go live after the boycott of A-listers who declined to participate.

    This Sunday’s event will take place without an audience, without famous presenters – nor on the red carpet adorned with fan favorites such as Lady Gaga and Briton Olivia Colman who both won in 2019.

  • Surprise Presenter: Snoop Dogg

    Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) President Helen Hoehne announced the nominees for this year’s awards during a live broadcast on the Golden Globes YouTube page on December 13, according to Variety.

    She was joined by a surprise presenter: Snoop Dogg.

    He read the nominees in several categories.

  • Retired Golden Globe Awards

    Some Golden Globes awards have been withdrawn, but have already been awarded in the past.

    These rewards include:

    • Best Documentary – Awarded from 1972 to 1976
    • Best Foreign English Language Film – Awarded from 1957 to 1973

The 34th three-day China Film Golden Rooster Awards will be held in Xiamen, east China’s Fujian Province, December 28-30, attracting a number of prominent stars and industry insiders.

The Golden Rooster Awards, which were launched in 1981 (the Year of the Rooster), are a national film awards ceremony sponsored by the China Federation of Literary and Art Circles and the China Film Association. It has become China’s most prestigious film awards event and has significantly contributed to the development of the Chinese film industry.

As the host city of the Golden Rooster Awards, Xiamen has experienced rapid development in the film and television industry in recent years. Statistics show that in 2020, Xiamen’s cultural industry operating revenue totaled 116.36 billion yuan ($ 18.26 billion), an increase of 7.3% year-on-year.

Xiamen, a coastal city with enchanting natural landscapes and a pleasant climate, has been hailed as “a garden on the ocean”, and it also bears elements of Minnan (southern Fujian province) and western cultures, which help the city to earn the reputation of “natural studio” and is favored by many filmmakers and directors.

The city government has designated the film and television industry as one of the engines of economic growth and aimed to make the city a “film and television capital” in China.

The city’s continued efforts have proven to be successful. Official data shows that by the end of November, Xiamen had gathered 2,046 film and television companies, including 350 newly established this year. More and more industry leaders are choosing Xiamen as an investment destination due to its healthy business environment for the film and television industry. Xiamen has become a hotbed for film and television production such as the hit television series “Minning Town,” which released earlier this year.

At the same time, the rapid development of the film and television industry has in turn helped to strengthen the cultural soft power and urban competitiveness of the city, and the beautiful garden city continues to create a perfect harmony between man and nature and has become a calling card for both tourists and investors.

Dance with me (to be confirmed, 103 minutes) Directed by Shinobu Yaguchi **** ½

Shizuka Suzuki (Ayaka Miyoshi) is not a fan of musicals.

A serious young woman with big ambitions, the office worker at Yotsuba Holdings describes them as “strange” and “for idiots”.

Forced to look after her niece on the same weekend that she agreed to help big boss and office hottie Ryosuke Murakami (Takahiro Miura) with many papers, Shizuka belatedly decides to reward her young accusation for two boring days of imprisonment with a trip to Fortune Earth. After the latter opens up and voices her fears about her impending performance in the school musical, Shizuka decides the best way to inspire her is to visit the hypnotist at the temporary theme park. However, Martin Ueda’s (Akira Takrada) powers of persuasion turn out to be a little too powerful – and slightly misguided.

* Locked display: The best musicals of all time (and where you can watch them)
* In Defense of … the Oscar-winning 2012 film The Artist

“Whenever you hear music, you won’t be able to help singing or dancing,” is a mantra that quickly becomes a nightmare for Shizuka. Hear every tune of a melody, mini-melody, or cell phone ringtone, and it uncontrollably bursts into motion and begins to sing.

Understandably, this quickly becomes mortifying and potentially dangerous to her life and career, as she is nearly whisked away by a bus, interrupts a board meeting, and virtually destroys an entire restaurant by faking elaborate routines.

When she is informed that she will need the original practitioner to reverse the curse, a desperate hunt for Ueda begins. But, as a traveling showman, he’s long gone, however, with the help of his disgruntled former assistant Chai (the hilarious Yu Yashiro) and ramshackle private investigator Yoshio Watanabe (Tsuyoshi Muro), Shizuka follows his path. track to the north.

Beaming with charisma and grace, Ayaka Miyoshi of Dance With Me is an impressive physical artist who also possesses excellent comedic timing.

Beaming with charisma and grace, Ayaka Miyoshi of Dance With Me is an impressive physical artist who also possesses excellent comedic timing.

What follows is a delicious road movie musical filled with memorable moments and quirky characters. Our trio find themselves caught in the middle of a gang war (and forced to dance to get by) and meet an abandoned street musician (a stage thief Chai) who has a cake knife – and a grudge. Along the way, we learn about the trauma (familiar to viewers of this year’s television comedy We Are Lady Parts) that apparently kept Shizuka away from lifelong musicals and became more and more invested in the search for the elusive Ueda.

Having made a career out of underdog stories (his 2001 comedy Waterboys became a television series that spanned three seasons), the seething story of writer-director Shinobu Yaguchi is a delightful and heartwarming film that surprisingly lingers long after the credits roll.

I saw this for the first time at the Macau International Film Festival in December 2019 and since then I have been looking for an opportunity to share it with my fellow Kiwis. It’s now available to stream for the next few days, free of charge, as part of a “sneak peek” for next year’s Japanese online film festival. If you’re a fan of Asian cinema, musicals, or just need a boost, this is the perfect weekend getaway.

Former Godzilla star Akira Takrada stars as charismatic showman and professional Dance With Me hypnotist Martin Ueda.

Radiant with charisma and grace, Miyoshi is an impressive physical artist (she apparently took 250 hours of dance lessons to prepare for the role) who also possesses excellent comedic timing, the finely choreographed numbers are a hoot and the songs eclectic. , many of them The ‘Eternal’ Japanese tunes of the 1970s and 1980s contain plenty of killer delicacies.

Offering a view of modern Japan – and Japanese cinema – not often seen, take this rare opportunity and Dance with Me while you can.

With romantic dramas Little nights, Little love and The Grand Passage, animated short Gox, the little fox and documentary Tora-san in Goto, Dance with Me is available to stream from the Japanese Film Festival Online until 8:59 p.m. on Monday, November 22 evening.
